Guided Montana Fly Fishing Trips

Fins & Feathers of Bozeman is a full-service fly fishing outfitter and guide service, centrally located in the heart of Montana’s world renowned, wild trout fisheries. We have been guiding anglers throughout Montana since 2000 and were recognized as the “Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Outfitter of the Year” in 2010. Guided fly fishing trips are available year-round from our Bozeman fly shop on the Yellowstone, Madison, Gallatin, Missouri, and Jefferson rivers in addition to a few private water and small stream options as well. Our Montana fly fishing guides offer an on-the-water experience that is second to none in the Bozeman area.

Bozeman is located near the headwaters of the Missouri River and just a short drive to the Yellowstone River valley. The Gallatin, Madison, and Jefferson rivers come together to form the Missouri River near Three Forks, Montana and each offer nearly 100 miles of quality, wild trout water. The Yellowstone River is an easy drive from Bozeman and offers an additional 125+ miles of water on which we operate. While floating is the most effective way to fish and access these Montana rivers, wade-oriented guided fly fishing trips in Bozeman are also available when conditions are appropriate. There simply is no place better than Bozeman for a guided Montana fly fishing experience.

While the other fly shops in Bozeman have all traded hands a time or two in the last 18 years, we are still under original ownership and management. The owner and Montana outfitter, Toby Swank, continues to be the head fly-fishing guide at Fins & Feathers of Bozeman and continues to actively guide anglers throughout the year.

All of our guides truly work hard to provide an exceptional, guided fly fishing experience on the waters around Bozeman to anglers from all over the globe with all levels of experience. Hard work often looks like being the first boat to the ramp, making last minute changes based on weather or crowds, changing flies just a few more times, patiently working with an angler on their technique throughout the day, and maybe rowing back up a run just one more time to get to that one rising fish that just seems out of reach. We avoid crowds by avoiding boat ramps that are busy, head out earlier than most, and fish stretches of the local rivers that other guides simply don’t know as well.
